Inspiration in the form of a table
Why not let a piece of furniture dictate your design direction? Purple and gold became the jumping off point thanks to the color of the bronze piece used as a side table. While the table may have inspired the color palette, the real star is your high school nemesis, geometry. If you look closely, triangles are everywhere in this bedroom: the purple and white chevron duvet meets royal purple pin tucks which nestle against an explosion of metallic triangles in the throw pillows, all of which are looked down upon by an angular geometric painting. It’s all about the sharp angles that leave you with a cutting-edge design.
As mentioned previously, the color inspiration came from the table, but the circular and curvilinear design of the piece is a wonderful respite from angles in the room. The organic shape of the table is what takes the edge off the space. The lamp and accessories continue the rounded forms, as well as the metallic sheen of the table.
The metallic and silky sheens of the bedding play well together, Shieh points out. “When shopping for bedding, consider three things: thread count, materials and weave. For a lustrous and smooth feel, look for fabrics that are 300 to 450 thread count, made from 100 percent extra-long cotton, single ply and woven in a sateen weave, she says.
